A Duluth gaming convention that got its start thanks to Kickstarter was in town again over the weekend.

Kevin Mickelson started Berserkon in 2013 with the help of crowd funding from Kickstarter. This year, though, he said they didn't need it.

After drawing in 300 gamers last year, the convention is back this year with table-top games like Magic: The Gathering and Pathfinder. They also have a space ship bridge simulator reminiscent of the one in Star Trek.

Mickelson said this year's turnout has been great.

"In fact, I just ran out to lunch and the guy working there was like, 'Oh, Berserkon! Man, I really hope I can go!'" Mickelson said. "And so I told him, 'Open tomorrow too, man.'"

Mickelson said Duluth has a strong gaming community. The convention continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
